Hope Reunites With His Father, Six Years After He Was Accused of Being A Witch

Danish care worker, Ms Anja Ringgren Lovén, who rescued a Nigerian boy some years ago, took to her Instagram page recently and announced his reunion with his father.

The news was shared by Linda Ikeji Blog Official on August 2, 2022.

If you recall, Anja took a toddler named Hope under her care, after he was accused of witchcraft and abandoned in Akwa Ibom state.

At the time, a viral photo of Anja and the 2-year-old boy stirred many reactions on social media.

In a new post, Anja revealed that she took the boy along to visit his dad.

She said it was difficult finding the boy's father.

She wrote "for more than six years of searching, we have finally found Hope's father".

She said his parents were now divorced.

However, the boy was happy to be home again and his father was surprised to see him.

She shared some photos from the trip with her fans and followers.

In the photos, Hope and his father had smiles on their faces.

The kindhearted Danish worker also stated that Hope will not be living with his parents, although she didn't disclose the reason.

According to her, it was important for him to know his background and his hometown, regardless of how he was treated in the past.

In her words "Children need to know where they come from because it helps shape their identity".
